(Ward is on the left coast dealing with a family emergency. I’ll try to post when possible, but in the meantime the email below is hilarious. It’s from ‘Arizona Dave’ to me, but he’s given me permission to reprint. And Dave is absolutely not responsible for the Bimbo stories. I am. LOL! Not only did I score an exact hit with my verbiage, but I might have found the thinnest-skinned legislator in the country. Also, special note to Bimbo Ugenti: in politics a sense of humor keeps your head above water!)

You must read the email below from Rep. Michelle Ugenti! Seems the “bimbo” is not loving Neighbors at War nor my affiliation with your website! LOL!!!!
Further, she is not loving my Arizona State Capital Follies Facebook page. She sent this moments before the Senate hearing on SB 1482, the bill George and I are trying to kill. How clever and childish.

You have recently received two emails from Dave Russell (both were sent to all members except he excluded me from his first email) regarding SB 1482 the HOA omnibus, prime sponsored by Senator Gail Griffin and cosponsored by several others. This bill is scheduled to be heard Monday afternoon in Senator Griffin’s Government and Environment committee.
I wanted to take this opportunity to share with all of you some of Mr. Russell’s other statements concerning me, other legislators, the legislature in general, and the Governor. I am providing links to his Facebook page and others he participates on so you can see first-hand what he really believes and how he expresses himself.

And here comes the magnificent trio, Blondie, the Bimbo, and now the Wack Job! The newcomer is Sen. Gail Griffin. (Wiki definition of a griffin: “a legendary creature with the body, tail, and back legs of a lion; the head and wings of an eagle; and an eagle’s talons as its front feet.” Actually, a griffin sounds like one screwed-up animal! But that’s beside the point.)
All this time I thought Republicans were smarter than this! Aren’t Republicans generally for smaller, less intrusive government? Preservation of Constitutional rights? Maybe there’s something in the water in Arizona to make Republicans stupider than the rest of the country. But this trio is something else, bringing back a fundamentally unconstitutional and illegal HOA bill, over, and over, and over.
Representative Michelle Ugenti (the cute young thing) is somehow getting her strings pulled by the powers-that-be in the HOA industry. Remember, politics is about nothing more than who gets how much of the pie. Looks like these three might be carving out a larger slice for themselves than anyone else in office. If Ugenti’s proposed law ever gets passed and signed by Governor Blondie it’ll be challenged in the courts. And once again it’ll be rejected.

Ward, you’re right! Thin skin and a lack of ethics will be this legislator’s downfall.
